VACATION WATCH REQUEST

The Whitney Police Department offers free Vacation Watches as a service to Whitney residents. During a Vacation Watch, officers will attempt to drive by the location several times within a 24-hour period and may conduct a foot patrol around the residence. If another person will be staying at the dwelling in the absence of the resident(s), or the residence has an active alarm system, the level of police response will be adjusted accordingly. This service will depend on things such as the level of other police activity and other unforeseen circumstances at the time.
